    Myelomeningocele: This is the fourth and most severe form. This form occurs when the spinal cord protrudes through the opening of the spine. This results in partial or complete paralysis of all body parts below the spinal opening. The paralysis can be so severe that the patient is unable to walk and has severe urinary and bowel disfunction.

    "The human nervous system develops from a small, specialized plate of cells along the back of an embryo. Early in development, the edges of this plate begin to curl up toward each other, creating the neural tube, which is a narrow sheath that closes to form the brain and spinal cord of the embryo. As development progresses, the top of the tube becomes the brain and the remainder of the tube becomes the spinal cord. This process is usually complete by the 28th day of pregnancy. However, if problems occur during this process, the result can be brain disorders called neural tube defects, including spina bifida." (National Institute of Neurological disorders, 2007).

    Oral cavity, hand/feet deformities
    Etiology
    The research on this birth defectResearch points to it having a genetic etiology, but there seem to be a fewhowever other theories connected withfor the manifestionsmanifestations of Moebius Syndrome.Syndrome have been proposed. Chromosome 13q12.2-q1313Q12.2-q13 has been identified as a cause of Moebius. It couldidentified, but hereditary paralysis has also have to do with paralysis heredity. Otherbeen implicated. Several other theories state that theinclude muscular disorder, cranial nerves affected failed to develop (aplasia),nerve aplasia, or damage to the cranial nuclei, or simply a muscle disorder (Zuker, Manktelow.)nuclei (Zuker & Manktelow, 2000).
    Treatment
    A sufferer of Moebius Syndrome will undoubtedly need speech therapy to assist with the articulatory problems rendered by the disorder. There is also a surgery called a Smile-Surgery specifically aimed at individuals with Moebius Syndrome. It involves healthy muscle being taken from the thigh and transplanted into the face. The muscle and facial nerves are attached. The muscle nerve begins to assist the facial muscles allowing the lips to seal and providing better support. This also enables the individual to articulate with more accuracy and to smile (Zuker, Manktelow.)
